He has over thirty years of experience in Mining and Securities Law and acts as legal counsel for a number of mining and mineral exploration clients in Canada and abroad.
Option Agreement for a New Brunswick Tungsten Property
Goldstar also announces that it has entered into a Mineral Option and Sale Agreement with Charles Morrissy with respect to a 46 claim exploration property covering an area of 9.5 km2, located within Prince William Parish of York County in New Brunswick at approximately 40 km west of Fredericton and adjacent to the north to the past producing Lake George antimony mine. Access to the property is excellent all year round and it is close to infrastructures.
The agreement provides for the payment of $25,000 at closing and the issue of 100,000 treasury shares. In addition, the Company shall pay Morrissy $100,000 on each anniversary date of the closing up to the fifth anniversary in order to acquire a 90% interest in the property. An interest of 95% can be achieved by a further payment of $1,000,000, and 100% by an additional payment of $2,000,000. The Company shall also pay $25,000 to Mr. Morrissy every year for a period of five years as an advance on the $1,000,000 payment referred to in the previous sentence. Closing is subject to the completion of the due diligence review which is already advanced, board approval and approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The property lies southeast of the Hackshaw Granite, a phase related to the Pokiok Batholith. A cupola of this granitic body has intruded into Silurian Age Kingslear Group metasedimentary rocks hosting the Lake George Antimony Deposit. Hydrothermal alteration has been observed from historical work and occurs along numerous northerly and easterly trending structures.
Exploration diamond drilling conducted during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s outlined a broad zone of tungsten bearing scheelite and molybdenite type mineralization located within an area located to the north of the Lake George mine site. The W-Mo mineralization is hosted within calc-silicate rocks and a network of cross cutting quartz veinlets which appear to be associated with the presence of a buried monzogranite intrusion located approximately 1.0 km north of the Lake George mine site.
Historical diamond drill holes returned the following tungsten (WO3) assay values:
